JUMP! JUMP!

Fashion Over Reason  Reformation jumpsuit, Nina Ricci satin mules

You guys, who doesn't love a good jumpsuit?! I personally love them beyond words but for some reason I only own one, this exquisite little number by Reformation that I would wear every day if I could. It's as comfy as PJs but wayyyy more chic.

It also works just as great with either heels or sneakers, the latter being my preferred shoe option for everyday estilo. But when the occasion does call for something a little more spruced up, a one-piece pantaloon garment is literally the easiest way to look put together and really stand out from what everyone else is wearing.

So basically, jumpsuits make me wanna, well, jump.

Personal Touch

Urban Outfitters apartment Arrow Side Table, Plum & Bow Batik decorative letter

I'm kind of a homebody (ain't no harm in that!) and therefore lots of my time gets spent thinking about how to make my nest even more comfortable.

Scouring flea markets is one of my favorite things, but I also have some go-to places that I know will add that je ne sais quoi to my space because their selection is not only super rad, but it's also totally unique. To me, a home is all about personal touches.

These two items I recently received from Urban Outfitters fulfill all those cravings. So charming and so on point, I am fully obsessed.

Geri G. Give Away!

Geri G. Transceutical Canvas face cream on the We Are Summer Marfa throw

Remember a few weeks back when I talked about makeup routines and introduced you to one of my new favorite cosmetics/skincare brands, Geri G.? Well, I love it so much that I want you guys, my amazing faithful readers to see for yourselves how fantastic it is.

Geri G. Transceutical Canvas cream

I've teamed up with Geri herself - an amazing woman, FIY - to give away F I V E (!!!) of her sublime face lotions, the Transceutical Canvas. It's basically a miracle cream that acts as a primer, moisturizer and night cream all at once. It actually feels so great and light under makeup, I put it on every morning. Oh, and it smells absolutely divine.

Fashion Over Reason + Geri G. give away

The way I'd describe the scent would be a subtle orange blossom, in no way too perfume-y, just enough to feel refreshing and oh so pleasant. The product itself is incredibly gentle on sensitive skin. I've mentioned before how sensitive my skin is and how I break out really easily, so finding skincare lines that my skin can handle can prove to be challenge. This product has smoothed out my complexion and leaves it glowing and hydrated.

Geri G. Transceutical Canvas on Marfa with flowers

I'm so excited to share this product with 5 of you! The give away is open internationally so enter your little heart out below with one click and be on your merry way.

Give away closes Sunday August 16th end of day. Good luck!

Saturday Moodboard

Haven't done one of these in a while. Mostly because I haven't had the time and partly because I haven't been inspired. We're already well into August and my mind is concentrated solely on how to squeeze every last drop out of summer while the countdown to Labor Day begins. Le sigh. Enjoy the mood board, friends.

In Bloom

Vintage floral top, vintage leather mini skirt, high-top gladiator sandals, Ray-Ban Lennon sunglasses, suede pouch

You guys certainly know by now that I ain't exactly a print aficionado. However, I sometimes make exceptions, depending on how I'm feeling and what my eye tells me: you may be surprised to learn that I find some prints to, in fact, be quite pleasing.

Take for example the floral top I'm wearing here. There's something intrinsically cool about it. It has a really interesting architectural shape, the blooming pattern has a very oriental feel to it, and it's one of those vintage finds that I've acquired over the years and that I've now had for many moons without tiring of it.

Taking into account all of those factors (shape, feel, fit, vibe, etc), plus the fact that a print this busy still hasn't gotten on my last nerve, as they usually tend to, and you've got a winning garment in my very exclusive book (I kid, I kid, I'm not that exclusive).
